    Description

    World's Columbian Exposition: Oversize Ticket for The Chocolat Menier Company. Slightly oversized ticket in mint condition. Second Series, with young girl writing on a blackboard or wall, and "Chocolat Menier, Concession No. 176, 15 cents, No. 61309." The Chocolat Menier Company was one of several chocolate and candy vendors at the World's Columbian Expo, some of which were incredibly ostentatious with their exhibits. More than one, for example, had huge statues, or in one case an entire gazebo, made of chocolate. Just how it was done and refrigerated in the hot Chicago summer of 1893 no one knows. A rare and very attractive ticket with no faults. Doolin No. 47. From the collection of Norm Bolotin.
